Chapter 13. iCal > Advanced Preferences

Advanced Preferences

1.
Click the “Advanced” icon in the Preferences toolbar.

2.
Turn on time zone support lets you change calendar time zones in two different ways—for an individual event, or for iCal in general. Learn more about setting iCal time zones pages 362363.

3.
Hide To Do items with due dates outside the calendar view limits the number of items in the To Do list by not showing items that have been assigned a due date that's not visible in the current window.

4.
Hide To Do items_days after they have been completed. Choose how many days you want to pass before To Do items are hidden. Don't checkmark this option if you want old To Do items to always show.

5.
Delete events_days after they have passed. Choose how many days you want to pass before iCal deletes old events.

6.
Delete To Do items_days after they are completed. Choose how many days you want to pass before completed To Do items are deleted.

7.
Turn off alarms when iCal is not open. If you share a computer, you may not want your alarms to bother other users. Otherwise it's helpful to have alarms work, even when iCal is closed.

8.
Automatically retrieve invitations from Mail. Choose this option so iCal's notifications feature will work when you send or receive invitations. See page 349.
